Couple of quick questions!
Firstly, do I need to download a soundset to use the elements it contains or can I download elements individually from the search function? Does the search function even include elements I haven't downloaded?
Secondly (thirdly?), do I need to download each soundset one at a time manually or is there a hidden 'download all' button?
I'm currently going through the list one at a time and downloading each soundset just incase I might want to use the elements for my own custom sounds in the future and I feel like there may be an easier, or at least more time effective way to do this!
Hi Zomrox, just a fellow user but thought I'd try and answer your question now rather than you having to wait.
1) the elements are downloaded as part of the soundsets so yes to use an element you would need to download at least one of the soundsets that contains it.
2) as far as I can tell the search function will only show elements you have installed already. A simple cheat to this is to visit the website, campaign manager and type in a sound you are looking for. This will list the soundsets containing what you need, which should help you download only what you need.
3) sadly no, there is no hidden download all button. Currently you do need to download each set individually, which does take some time. Hopefully that's a function we will get in the future once everything is working right for both PC and Mac.
Hope this helps and hope I got it all right! 😁
Thanks for that, Steve! I spent some time downloading them all so I'm all set to create
Fantastic, look forward to hearing what you've created 😁
The most important thing here needed is the ability to hit download on more than one SoundSet at once and queue them (like you can in the Players).
@zomrox, would you REALLY like to download absolutely EVERYTHING all in one go in the creator?
And here are extra words to make sure I hit the word count!!!
Download all or the ability to queue all the soundsets would've been awesome!
same here, bandwidth and storage are no problem, but every time i change tablets (ive had a few in the last couple of years) i have to manually download everything again
(This is on the list)
My group and I love the application, thank you!
I'm writing this just to "+1" on a "download all sounds and sets" feature. It would be a huge time saver.
Yep we've got this one on on the list Make sure you give it a vote there if it's a feature you want adding. The more votes suggestions get the more likely it is that we can look at doing it
OMG Yes, please! I'm currently using SoundSet Creator on a Mac using Windows (Bootcamp) and it takes almost a minute for each one. Factor in boredom time and distractions, and it's taken an hour and I'm not even a fourth of the way done!
PS. I've been told it isn't like this on an actual PC.
PPS. I have a hand cramp.
+1. This would save me loads of time!
We are planning to remove the need to download and pre-install anything at all!
That's what I said!
(i.e. required samples to playback what you just clicked are delivered with the call to play. Interface items are delivered when you click on the SoundSet for the first time.)
I definitely want a "download all that I don't already have" option.
Yup. I hear you... still this.
